A diplomatic achievement for Pakistan against India over Occupied Kashmir
ISLAMABAD - OIC officials and a top Saudi diplomat has voiced strong support for Kashmiri people in their struggle for their UN-pledged right to self-determination.
The support was expressed at a special event held in New York to mark 72nd anniversary of India’s massive invasion and occupation of Kashmir, known as Black Day.
The event was organized by Pakistan’s outgoing ambassador to United Nations Maleeha Lodhi.
In her concluding remarks, Ambassador Lodhi said while 27 October was a Black Day, each day of occupation is equally dark for the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir.
Lodhi said India could not continue its draconian tactics in Kashmir indefinitely, as harsher restrictions would be met with equally strong resistance by the people.
She thanked the Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan for his strong statement on Kashmir at the UN and also urged other leaders from the Muslim world to speak out for the rights of the Kashmiri people.
An impressive photo exhibition was also organized depicting the barbarity of human rights violations in occupied Jammu and Kashmir and highlighting the Kashmiri people’s struggle for their inalienable rights.
